7:02 am
the president of this country said that chile is a different country than it was before this ordeal. it is stronger today. as they were able to turn what could have become a tragedy into a triumph. with his fellow miners returned to safety, luis urzua said good-bye to the rescuers he would leave behind and entered the capsule. finally, it was his turn. 32 miners had already taken the ride up a 2000-foot shaft cut through solid rock. above ground, more chants of celebration, this time sensing chile's 70-day national ordeal was finally coming to a conclusion. just before 10:00 p.m., he emerged. after taking the lead for 70 days, he insisted on being the last one out. above ground, he hugged president sebastian pin era, as so many of his comrades had done before him. and said, we have done what the
7:03 am
entire world was waiting for. then, the day-long celebration hit a new pitch. >> tonight, we have experienced a night that we will never forget. each time i had the chance to hug the miners, they were so happy because they were experiencing a kind of rebirth. >> reporter: but although the 22 million dollar rescue mission was now an overwhelming success, those six rescue workers still had to make it back safely. one by one, they returned, until just one man remained. and, with his return to the surface, chile's national nightmare ended better than anyone might have dreamed. for 22 hours and seemingly without a hitch, the miners came up. the operation so efficient, it sped up over the course of the day. and each time, the same heart-wrenching scene played out. family and friends who have been
7:04 am
staying here at camp hope are now beginning to make their way home, hopeful only for their future. now, you might remember initially they predicted it could be a 48-hour-long rescue. well, it was less than 24 hours. you might remember in the beginning, they were suggested a christmas rescue and here we are in the middle of october. the president of chile used to own a television station and, indeed, this appears to be a picture-perfect orchestrated event. maggie? >> seth doane, thank you, seth. jose sanchez has been outside the mine since the very first day. he had three family members -- trapped inside and joins us this morning from chile. good morning, sir. first, i'd like to ask you what it was like to be part of that massive celebration that we all watched?
7:05 am
of. >> translator: it was tremendous. at first, we saw the reality of the situation. and after coming to the top and to be with us, we celebrated until about 2:00 in the morning. >> how are your family members doing? >> translator: everybody's good. everybody is happy, waiting to be reunited. they're in the hospital now, but we're waiting to see them in person. >> have they said what was the most difficult part of their experience? >> translator: when we first got there, we didn't know the situation. and the owners of the mine
7:06 am
abandoned -- >> do you know if they will go back to their work as miners? >> translator: no, no members of the family want to continue working as miners. at least none of the family members do. we don't want to live the same experience again. >> what are they looking forward to in the future? >> translator: my brother-in-law plays the guitar, the accordion, all types of instruments. with his songs, expresses himself. he could dedicate himself to music or to writing a story of what happened. >> jose sanchez, thank you, sir, we wish you all the best. >> translator: thank you all for supporting us from so far away.
7:07 am
>> you're welcome. now here's harry. >> all right, maggie. here to talk about what happens next for the miners is colonel tom kolditz, chairman of the department of behavioral sciences and leadership at the u.s. military academy. good morning. good to have you here. >> thanks, harry. >> let's talk a little bit about they're out but we really witnessed something very interesting as the miners were underground. they had meetings every day. there was a leadership structure. how will this serve them as they now are above ground? >> well, that structure, while they were down in the mine, really protected them from a lot of stress and trauma that they otherwise would have felt. their challenge down there was a lack of certainty, of volatility, ambiguity and a leader can take structure and can take purpose and put it into a group and literally create feelings of certainty and hope in that group by doing that. >> even when there almost doesn't seem to be any. >> absolutely. >> would you say, go so far as
7:08 am
to say that as these guys are out now, having gone what they've gone through and certainly some moments of total hopelessness, that they will have endured some sort of post-traumatic stress? >> it's likely that a percentage of these miners will experience some long-term stress reactions. and that can take anywhere from six to nine months to emerge after the trauma, so we need to watch them for a while. however, some are going to get out of the mine, they are going to have a one-week to three-week adjustment period and then they are going to be just fine. >> what would be the things if somebody called you up and said, give us a little advice about what we can expect in terms of the behavior of these guys, what would be the -- what would be the things you would be wary of or cautious about? >> well, what we're going to see is first of all a complete disruption of their sleep patterns. they are going to have difficulty sleeping. they are going to have nightmares, sort of lying jet-lag, only worse. and so, that's going to create friction in their families.
7:09 am
it's going to take time for them to work through some of those things and adjust, but most of them be be able to do that. >> it's interesting, as we talked around the office, these guys will become instant celebrities. that may be something that they're least prepared for. certainly, you go down in a mine there, are certain things that, you know, come through your safety instruction and all that other stuff. the celebrity part might be the hardest part of all. >> it could be. it will definitely tend to pull this group apart, pull individuals in different directions are. it's very hard work and they're tired right now. so, they're going to have to balance their rest and recovery with all this notoriety and fame. >> what a story. colonel, thank you so much for being here. appreciate your service, as well. >> thank you. >> maggie? >> thanks, harry. 7:709 we turn to politics and the red-hot senate race in delaware. last night's first debate between the two candidates got national attention because of various statements by one of them, tea party-backed christine
7:10 am
o'donnell. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, maggie. . debate involved two candidates but the spotlight was really on one of them, christine o'donnell and her history of controversial comments. >> on the specific quote that you said that china has a plan to take over america, do you know about this plan? >> well, they misquoted me at the time, i believe. but look at what's going on. >> o'donnell's financial troubles also came up. >> how can voters rely upon your thoughts on how to manage the deficit if you're having such personal financial issues of your own? >> when i fell upon difficult times, i made the sacrifices needed to set things right. i sold my house, and i sold a lot of my possessions. >> reporter: outside the auditorium, several witches milled about, some for o dodge, some against. >> i'm not a witch. >> reporter: her now infamous ad came up more than once. >> there's been lots of
7:11 am
discussion in the national media about things my opponent has said or done that i, frankly, thing are distraction from the core issues delawareans ask about, ask both of us about. >> you're just jealous you weren't on "saturday night live." >> because i'm not a witch. and, if i am, do you really want to cross me? >> reporter: the national attention on this race seemed to put both o'donnell and the democrat, chris coons, on edge. >> miss o'donnell, we're going to try and have a conversation this evening rather an diatribe if we could. >> o'donnell tried to stick to conservative talking spoints but struggled to name is supreme court decision she disagreed with. >> i'll put it up on my website. >> reporter: and refused to say whether she believes in revolution. >> what i believe is irrelevant. >> why is it irrelevant? voters want to know what you believe. >> reporter: o'donnell spent the night on attack because she's 20 points behind in the polls, accusing her opponent at one point of being a maxist and in
7:12 am
one of the few light moments in this debate he laughed and said, i'm a life-long capitalist. nancy. >> we could see it on tv and make our decisions how she handled herself but what was the feeling among the people there, the people on campus, about how she performed last night? >> reporter: well, we talked to a lot of students and o dodge seemed to surpass their expectations simply because their expectations were so low. but, frankly, they didn't come away thrilled with either candidate. they thought he was very condescending. they thought she was very vague. these two candidates will have another companies to impress the voters today. they are debating again this afternoon. >> hopefully, they will. somebody's got to win. nancy cordes in washington, thank you, nancy. lots more news this morning. erica hill is back and at the news desk. good morning, erica. >> good morning. nice to be back with you this morning. we begin with a record number of foreclosures in this country. banks seized more than 288,000 homes from july through september, that's according to

7:31 am
david hartley's disappearance along the u.s.-mexico border where the investigation reportedly has turned up evidence of mistaken identity. and after the latest deadly message from a mexican drug gang, some people are wondering if the american jet skier will ever be found. cbs news correspondent don teague has the latest. >> reporter: it's a story that has captivated america, with more twists and turns than a best-selling crime novel t. began as a fun-filled day of jet skiing for tiffany and david hartley. it ended with murder and a mystery that has created an international uproar. the couple was attacked after visiting an old church that's on the mexican side of falcon lake and there are reports this morning that tiffany and david hartley may have been mistaken for members of a drug cartel and caught in the middle of a turf war. david was shot in the head and is presumed dead. tiffany escaped and called 911. >> are you sure that your husband got shot? >> yes, in his head.
7:32 am
>> reporter: the days since the shooting have been emotionally trying for david hartley's family and his wife, whose story was questioned by mexican authorities. one official saying, we're not sure. we're not certain that the incident happened the way they are telling us. >> you do feel like, you know, this is it, i'm never going to see him again. >> reporter: and the american sheriff investigating the shooting says he believes tiffany hartley, in part, because of blood evidence and eyewitness and this police dashcam video that shows the couple being pulled over on their way to the lake. family members initially criticized what seemed a lack luster effort by mexico to find harlley's body. >> please, negotiate. this we want david home. >> reporter: last wednesday the mexican army and police began a massive search using boats and military helicopters, dangerous duty in an area of mexico
7:33 am
controlled by the heavily armed cartel. >> these individuals possess the caliber of machine guns, rpgs, shoulder-fired grenade launchers. >> reporter: this week they murdered the lead investigator in hartly's case and delivered his head in a suitcase to the mexican army. >> it breaks my heart that people would do this to him. >> reporter: today, there is still no sign of david hartley's body and no end in sight to mexico's drug violence. don teague, cbs news, dallas. joining us now is fred burton, vice president of intelligence for the global intelligence company stratfor, a counterterrorism special agent for the state department and joins us live this morning. good morning, sir. >> good morning. >> as you've been able to sort of piece together all of this information, even from some distance, what do you make of it all? >> i think it's highly feasible that the hartleys were in the wrong place at the wrong time. they were identified by zeta
7:34 am
spotters, these are individuals that are posted as lookouts to keep an eye out for undercover agents, either from u.s. law enforcement or mexican law enforcement. and i think a set of dominos started to fall when they went out on the water and they were just certainly a victim of circumstances. >> this is a theory now. >> yes, that's a working theory of mine. but, i also know it's shared throughout the law enforcement community. >> because, now were the plates on the jet ski trailer mexican plates? >> yes, they were. and i think when you look at this in perspective, with my knowledge of working on the border violence issue for quite some time now, it's not unusual at all for these cartels to be on the lookout for any kind of individual that just doesn't fit, seems out of the ordinary.
7:35 am
>> so, here they are, anglos, mexican state plates on the jet ski. if there's a spotter on the american side of the border, somebody on the other side is going to know instantaneously. >> absolutely. the cartels have a very robust intelligence collection network on the ground. they use small little hand-held motorola radios, message texts and so forth just to report on the movements of individuals that don't fit. >> so then, there is this outcry and there is this response and something has to be done and the state department begins to become involved. and, as the mexican authorities start to investigate, there is a significant pushback, then, from the cartels. >> absolutely. the cartels own this geography and specifically the zetas, which is a very violent organization and their signature is the beheading of the mexican
7:36 am
police investigation -- investigator, which is just absolutely horrible. violence is something they're quite used to. in essence, they're not opposed to picking up family members or loved ones of individuals and hold them for extortion and ran some, and so forth. >> and while the mexican army may put in a show of force, even have some investigators there, i mean, they really do operate with impunity and the fact is at the end of the day, they're the ones in charge. >> they are warlords for a lack of better word. they can completely control the entire infrastructure of the area. they own the politicians, in many cases. many cops are on their payroll and either you do business with them or you die. >> fred burton, thank you very much for your insight and expertise this morning. do appreciate it. >> thank you. >>

mortgage now. how do you know who has it? >> that's important to realize. what that original mortgage note you signed when you basically bought your home who owns that now is important because whomever owns that now is the only bank that can legitimately foreclose on you. there's a website set up called wheresthe note.com. that's where you want to go to find out exactly who owns your mortgage note. you put in your personal information. i vetted the site. literally hundreds of thousands of have visited this site already because it is useful. >> what should i do with that information and why should i know that? >> first of all, even though you don't think you are facing foreclosure or dealing with mortgage fraud, this is important for any homeowner to know because it is important to know obviously who you pay your money to every month and whether or not it is legitimate. if you think you have actually come in contact with mortgage fraud or you've been the victim of that, you need to reach out to your attorney general like

when it's deer versus car on the highway, the results are usually not very pretty. 200 drivers a year in the united states are killed in collisions with deer. and october, november, and december are particularly high-risk months. early show consumer correspondents susan koeppen is in valley grove, west virginia with the story. susan, good morning.
8:19 am
>> reporter: good morning, harry. we're live in west virginia because this is the number one state in the country for deer-vehicle collisions. according to a new sfaud, your chance of hitting a deer in this state over the next 12 months, 1 in 42. but, nationwide there, are more than a million deer-related accidents every year. this driver's night is about to take a violent turn, a deer dashes out into the road without warning. a scenario repeated over and over on roads and highways across the country. over the past two years, there have been an estimated 2.3 million deer-related accidents. that's nearly 96,000 a month, almost 3200 a day. it's estimated that over the past five years, the number of deer-vehicle collisions has increased more than 21%. think about it this way. in the time it is taking me to talk to tell you all of this,
8:20 am
it's likely that someone, somewhere in america has hit a deer. according to a new report by state farm insurance, west virginia, iowa, michigan, south dakota, and montana round out the top five states where drivers are most likely to hit a deer. jonathan la mac yeah was about to merge onto a highway when he came face to face with a full-grown buck. >> i slammed on my breaks and hope the deer kept running but i hit into it. >> reporter: his car was totalled, the deer killed, jonathan walked away uninjured. >> i feel like we were really lucky, you know, that the car didn't go off the road, the deer didn't go in the car. >> reporter: experts say urban sprawl combined with more drivers on the road is a main reason for so many deer-car collisions. a majority of the accidents happening between 6:00 and 9:00 p.m. how big of a problem is the deer population in the united states? >> oh, it's huge. >> he sz this little device
8:21 am
called deer deter is it possible solution to preventing many deer-car accidents. now, at work if places like essex county, new jersey, the device senses headlights of approaching cars and sets off a flashing light and high-pitched noise. we have a bunch of cars coming down this stretch of road. they are coming along. this senses the car and does what to the deer? >> it's activated if the deer's approaching it, the deer just stops and as the vehicles go by, it'll stop going off and the deer will go on its way. >> reporter: essex county spends $100,000 on more than 400 devices for its biggest trouble spots. so far, deer collisions have slowly started to decrease. but, with a growing deer population, america's roadways are becoming increasingly hazardous for both deer and driver. and just in case you're wondering, the state with the lowest number of deer
8:22 am
collisions, hawaii. your chance of hitting a deer in that state, 1 in more than 13,000, harry. >> not a lot there, i guess. what are the best things you can do as a driver to make sure you and a deer don't come head to head? >> reporter: well, experts say one of the first things you should do if you come head to head with a deer while you're driving, don't swerve, that's one of the worst things you can do, you can actually make an accident even worse. and, also, if you see one deer, there are probably more since they travel in herds. and, also, check your insurance policy. not all insurance policies will cover one of these accidents, and they can be pricey, harry. >> last but not least, you are standing there in the deer-hitting capital of the world. have you seen any deer this morning? >> reporter: um, there is a deer behind me, but let me just say you don't want us to pan the camera over in that direction,

8:33 am
one second. just to tell you, no double dips. that's all that's in here. just ground apples. it takes about three apples to get a good cup of cider. no? there we go. while we -- by the way, while we roll the press, do you want to see how you make a delicious apple turnover? watch. there we go. that's a delicious apple turn over. thank you very much. we'll be here all week. all right, we are moving into the press now. we are starting the press. this is going to push all of the juice out of the already ground-up apples. nick, what kind of apples are wing why to make this cider. >> it's mcintosh, these are mcintosh apples. >> all of this will come down and create the beverage which sneaks down through here. >> 2500 pounds per square inch. >> look at that baby. it is beginning to kind of crush
8:34 am
right now. there you see it, beginning to drip. look at. this hold on. can i get -- i can get in here for a -- >> it's coming up. it's coming up. >> i can't get it fast enough. hold on, live television at its best. oh. delicious apple cider. hmmm, now i have the energy to dot weather. let's take a look at the maps and see what is happening across the country. relatively quiet. a little bit of warm weather as we head south towards the gulf. the warm weather begins to subside in the southwest. the big concern the nor-easter rolling up the mid-atlantic states into new england. we're talking about high winds gusting anywhere from 40 to 70 miles per hour in some locations. beach erosion and we're going to keep an eye on the cape. let's come back live right now. take a look at this cider, really beginning to flow. and as it does, that's a quick look at
8:35 am
>> that's a quick look at your weather. this cider is delicious -- literally. maggie, it is so gorgeous in vermont, so gorgeous. >> have you had apple cider donuts and if they have some, can you bring me some? >> in fact, they have i had some this morning. for a price i may bring you some. >> we'll talk about that by e-mail. thank you very much. have you had a weird twitch or found a strange spot on your skin and immediately decided you had a terrible disease?
8:36 am
things like this can freak you out but, relax are, harmless as our dr. jennifer ashton is with us with a list of common complaints that probably don't mean for which your health. >> good morning, maggie. every doctor when she or she is in medical school we read about the book and read the disease and every single person says, i have that. >> i have tharchlts it is not just laypeople. >> because of the internet we can all read about it and convince ourselves we are sick. >> that's correct. >> if we have certain things like skin tags it probably doesn't mean anything. what is a skin tag exactly. >> really just benign skin growths, more common as we age, more common in people with diabetes, more common in people who are overweight and look fleshy, sometimes have a little stalk and can rub against jewelry or clothing, beeven in, usually not cancerous but there are things, of course you should keep an eye out for. i will always tell you, most serious things, don't go away on their own, they get worse. >> and skin tags, if harmless,
8:37 am
should not get worse? >> exactly. the things to look out, for again you what unto be observant on your own skin because we always talk about the benefit of being aware of your skin for skin an ker, et cetera, if something changes, colors, if it bleeds, if it has an irregular border. if you just feel anxious and concerned about it, very simple go to a dermatologist, very easy to remove. >> okay. the next thing, some people get this like cloudy film over their eyes. i learned this morning those are called eye floaters. >> that can't be a good thing. >> again, another consequence of aging because we have a gel in our yidz ball, as we get older, the collagen, we have less in there and actually get these little -- it is little debris, actually in our eyeball and they look like little hazy floaters or spots. now, very important when you are talking about vision, there are some visual changes that can actually be serious the floaters are not. but, as we get older, 35 and up, it's really a good idea to see an eye doctor regularly to get your eyes examined, if you have
8:38 am
a shade come down over your eye or you have visual changes or part of your visual field gets impaired, you're not seeing well, absolutely you want to see a dr. but these little things that kind of tend to float around, they don't impair your vision or get worse, it's just consequence of aging. >> it may be gross but not necessarily harmless. >> exactly. >> the next thing is something i've noticed as i age i tend to bruise much easier than i used to. why does that happen? >> a lot of reasons, our thin gets thinner and our capillaries -- always get weaker. it is more common to see bruising. a lot of people as they get older take a baby aspirin and can increase the risk of bruising. if you are noticing the bruising is out of proportion to injuries or you are feeling you are getting more of them on your body or it's accompanied with other types of bleeding like nosebleeds see a doctor. we have to remember certain efr the counter things like ginko can thin blood and increase the risk of bleeding. again, usually harmless if you

early. the fact that courteney cox said that is so enlightened of her. if you think of every relationship you've had and what's gone wrong with them, it is pretty clear you knew from the beginnings those signs were there. so recognize those sgleerl give us an idea what the warning signs are you are headed towards this traffic specifically. >> he stops doing things for himself. he puts everything on you, even the chores of the day, just the regular stuff. you come home and feel like you are saying as if you are talking to a child, make your bed, pick things up. >> take the gar ban out. >> exactly. he should do that on his own and want to take responsibilities. he should be the other half of you. >> david arquette in his oversharing overtalk ad, of course, tweeted poll jae said he and court new cox haven't had sex in four months. >> i think it is way longer than. think about it, if somebody is behaving like your mother, that's not hot. you don't want to have sex with someone you perceive in a mother role. exactly not for her either, who

wants to have sex with somebody she feels she is completely infantsizing here. >> it wasn't courteney cox apparently mothering david arquette. are those roles ever switched. >> exactly. sometimes we say she has a daddy but the daddy, mommy, the whole stigma, more about the fact that somebody in the relationship has all the power and the other person is just like a child like at home when your mother made all the decisions, can i go out, can i spend money, what can i do? you don't want to have a relationship that doesn't have an equal amount of power in some ways not meaning someone pays the bills and the other does nothing, it could be ying and yang, one person is shy and the other is out there. it is a balance. >> you have to recognize -- >> having somebody is an equal is really, really important and "he equal" is interpreted differently by every couple. >> lots of things to think about. thank you very much. >> thanks very much. >> creator and executive
